on roll since the first presidential debate. check out this new cnn poll of polls. mitt romney has a two-point lead over president obama in that national poll there. here is the story in ohio where president obama holds a three-point lead. romney will be in ohio today campaigning. >> now, he's looking to capitalize on the momentum from the first presidential debate. debate number two is tuesday, but thursday's vp debate is still a hot topic on the trail. cnn political national correspondent jim acosta has more. >> randi and victor, the debate after the debate has been about substance most notably the vice president's comments on libya. >> i feel great. >> reporter: at breakfast after his fiery debate, paul ryan still had his sunny side up. >> no, it's what i expected. ryan offered no complaints about biden's aggressive performance, which was designed to put some points on the president's scoreboard, whether it was on ryan's past request for stimulus money. >> on two situations -- >> reporter: or ryan's attempt to compare mitt romney to jack kennedy. >> now you're jack kennedy. >> reporte
's candy crowley could be vital. we have new polling tonight, new insight as well. also, mitt romney's primary debate guru joins us, the former top newt gingrich advisor is here. so is paul begala who helped bill clinton become president and is working to keep barack obama president. all of it with an eye to tuesday and beyond. that's because tuesday could be when president obama regains the initiative which he lost on stage in denver, or when mitt romney might consolidate his gains. first, quickly, the event that really sets the table for tuesday, last night's vice presidential debate, which depending on who you ask is either pulling president obama's case for re-election off the critical list or vindicated mitt romney's choice as paul ryan as running mate. depends what side of the political aisle you stand on. keeping them honest, each debater had moments that didn't quite stand up to closer scrutiny. first, paul ryan on the stimulus, which vice president biden called him on. >> they said that right now if we just passed the stimulus, the economy would grow at 4%. it's growing at 1
slightly ahead. here's to back it up, a tampa bay times/miami herald poll, a bigger romney lead. clearly, romney momentum. the obama campaign says it's not that big in florida but he's pulling up into at least a tie, maybe slightly ahead. that's not all. let's start out in the west. look at battleground state polls out here since the first debate. nevada on your left, colorado on your right. a dead heat in nevada, dead heat in colorado. romney's been doing well in the west holding his own. he's boosted his standing a bit since the first debate in the two battlegrounds out there. come over to the heartland, in the state of ohio, you see here, again, he was down a lot in wisconsin before the first presidential debate. that's paul ryan's home state. he's pulled into a statistical tie. this one's a bit more troublesome for the romney campaign. they are closer in ohio than before the first debate but still behind. the president has kept a small but steady lead in the state of ohio. that one's a bit of a problem for romney but he's at least closer from before the debate. after the debate, let
points. now back to within five or six. cnn poll has it at four. clearly, still a lot of work for romney. let's keep going. virginia, we saw polls before the first presidential debate starting to stretch outside the margin. back to a dead heat. that's nbc news "wall street journal" mars poll and down to florida and here's another one. it started to open up a handful. there is no question, no question, the race changed after the the first presidential debate. romney got a bounce. but when you get a bounce, the challenge is to sustain it. that's the big challenge. can paul ryan keep the republican momentum? >> so, it's narrowed in these battleground state, but is there any indication that first debate created new battleground states? >> some evidence. i'm a bit skeptical. but one state where the numbers changed, mitt romney's birth state of michigan. his dad was governor there. our cnn poll had it close to ten points. looked like no way the republicans could put that into play. three points. so that's within the margin of error. that sheds michigan back into play. do the democrats now thin
that is hoping that joe biden can sort of blunt romney's momentum, which is beginning to show up in the polls. we know most people thought that mitt romney won the debate. democrats are looking for biden to blunt that momentum. can he do that? >> of course, joe biden, again, knows how to communicate very, very well. i think the expectations for president obama, of course, are always exceedingly high, and it was relatively easy for mr. romney who had an 11th hour conversion. we recall that he is the etch-a-sketch guy that has transformed himself and quite frankly, we always have to wournd which mitt is going to show up. so if you just lay out lie after lie after lie about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about, of course, you can look good. vice president biden will do very, very well. he knows what has been going on. he is in touch with the american public, and i'm just hopeful mr. ryan will tell the truth. whether it's about medicare and that it's a voucher program, that mr. romney and mr. ryan, their health care plan will lead to many uninsured and put people back ou
't say any more that debates don't matter. the new cnn poll, poll of polls, mitt romney has a slight lead with likely voters, 48% to 47%. his performance certainly showed that you can't say it doesn't matter anymore. there is no bigger swing state than ohio, where you are. >> reporter: the history tells you no republican has ever been elected president without winning the state of ohio. can you do the math and have romney win without this state? yes. is it likely? no. before the debate some polls had him down as many as nine points in ohio. new cnn poll row leased last night has him down four, 51-47. another group, american research group show ed romney up a point in ohio. no question. just like in the national polls, a bit of a boost. romney is up in the suburbs, up among independents. there's signs of strength here from romney, we can tell you there are a few soft spots he needs to work on. >> john king in ohio, covering the debates as well. thank you very much. watch live coverage of the debate tomorrow night, 7:00 eastern. watch it on cnn or on cnn.com. >>> happening this morning, the
overly aggressive. >> romney has enjoyed a post-debate bounce in national polls, and a boost of confidence on the campaign trail. >> there's more energy and passion. people are getting behind this campaign. >> at a town hall without a podium and with audience interaction, the candidate's style and body language can take on added weight. at the first town hall style presidential debate in 19 2 president george h.w. bush repeaedly checked his watch, a sign some thought that he didn't want to be there. commentators said bill clinton walking toward the audience to answer a question about the recession highlighted his ability to connect with voters. one thing that can make it hard for a candidate to be aggressive is a question like this. >> can we focus on the issues and not the personalities and the mud? >> analysts say the format could be got a for the president. >> he will be able to draw from that energy, from the energy of the public and the crowd. >> as for romney -- >> one of his big challenges during this entire campaign has been not being able to connect with the common m
some new numbers this morning on that race. the recommend montana poll shows president obama with a two-point lead over mitt romney. what's interesting in the numbers is only one democrat has won arizona in the past 60 years and that was bill clinton in 1996. both of the vermontal candidates are back in their home states today. paul ryan is in wisconsin and president biden is in delaware. at a fund-raiser yesterday biden talked about the difference between the candidates and he offered this. quote, every presidential race every race comes down twho they thing has character and conviction. it will not surprise you on that score. i don't even think it's close between president obama and governor romney. >> let joe be joe is what president obama said before the debate and that's skpanlly what "saturday night live" had fun with last night. >> mr. biden, i know you're under a lot of duress but it would do everything good if you -- >> you don't scare me, shark eyes. you think you're tougher than me because you do the px 90 workout? let me tell you. there's jim strong and old manner. you want
